SAO's fight scenes are leagues ahead of anything I've seen from .hack//, but .hack// wins on just about everything else. I've never played any of the games though, so I can't judge on that.

@PinkSapphire: So is there anything I need to know about fairy tale before I start posting as Raka? Because I know next to nothing.

On topic though, Hideyoshi is definitely a girl and nobody can convince me otherwise. Not even Hideyoshi.

.Hack//GU has some pretty awesome and incredibly well directed fights. Sign didn't really have an emphasis on fighting (and neither did the bombshell of mediocrity that was Roots), largely favoring character development, story, and music, among other things. SAO sort of balances these, though I do think that SAO is the better anime when it comes to action and Sign for pretty much anything else. Having said that, GU...it's just amazing. If you can't play it, watch the movie...though I really, REALLY recommend playing the games, and I explicitly said in my review that the movie isn't a substitute, but...meh. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do, and the movie has some great fight scenes as well (since it has the same director, and it shows).

Well...I would say that, for your version of Neko, it should probably be Nekomata or a bakeneko. Now, since it has one tail, it would be a bakeneko...but a rather loose interpretation of them. Probably the loosest, but still rather close interpretation of them that I can think of that I think you might know is from Bakemonogatari (as well as Nekomonogatari). Kirara (or Kilala, if you prefer) from Inuyasha is a nekomata, but rarely does in transform into humans (if ever).

I will clarify that both Bakeneko and Nekomata are similar, in that Bakeneko have one tail and, supposedly when they get old enough, their tails split into two. Then there are Nekomata that originate in the mountains, born as Nekomatas rather than cats, unlike the Bakemono turned Nekomatas.

Still, I say go Bakeneko. Or Nekomata, since they can be born as nekomatas. Or...natural born nekomata/bakeneko. Either way, I think either of those works better than plain "Cat".


Hideyoshi. That's all the reason you need.
Bakeneko is not the name i'm searching for then because their tails don't split in two in this universe. I might as well use TornZero's suggestion because it sounds more like the image of the cat youkai that I mean.

Alright, now that I'm here...how should I introduce my character in the rp? Is there anything in particular my character HAS to do first? Are there "missions" or other tasks that I need to take care of before I start roaming the campus? I don't want to screw myself up here.


Posted from Pokecommunity.com App for Android
No there are no missions available for you at the moment since the last one is about to end. You can just freely roam around on the campus. I suggest you'll try interacting with other characters who are on the campus at the moment, this will be James since everyone else is inside the school.

@Pink: Did the poison kick in?
No? If you're talking about Nami being unconscious, Oz used a spell to force her body to shut down.


I'm thinking about dropping the "poisoned food" event, so please forget it for now.

Geras32- you can post as you wish, just remember that you are inside a building and you can talk to Wolfy's character if he's okay with it.

Only a bakeneko with a forked tail is referred to as a nekomata. The other form of nekomata is found as a mountain-dwelling beast with the body of a dog and the head of a cat. Regardless, "nekomata" is entirely inaccurate for a R+V nekomusume. However, a bakeneko can exist through multiple means, though they all stem from originally being domestic cats. They can gain superpowers after reaching ten years of age or a certain weight. These powers include walking on their hind legs and, as I've said before, assuming a human form, but they're still generally cats.

Well, Solo is at Fairytale HQ right now napping, since there's nothing for him to do at the moment, if you're looking for a reason to post.

Could you make some sort of concluding post for the battle then? If that's not any trouble.

Ofcourse it isn't c: but PokeCommunity isn't working optimal at the moment (by me atleast). It keeps telling me the site is too busy and that I have to try again later, in result that I only can get online a few times a day until this problem has dissapeared.

@Breastpad-less Genderbent Sakuy-I mean...
@TornZero - Yeah, thinking about it now, I agree. The youkai in this aren't close enough to nekobake to be called them, so neko musume and neko musuko would work...but nekobake is so fun to say ;_;

Heck, even Nekotoko (Cat Man) and Nekonna (Cat Woman) are really fun to say ;_; CAN WE DO THOSE, MOMMY? CANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWECANWE!?

That last part was meant for you, mom.

Well, I guess all of it was, though the first part was more directed at Torn.

Uhm... right .__. seems like this OOC is getting more random with the day.

I might change the name Neko to Nekotoko and Nekonna BUT... I want the other to agree with this... so is that okay everyone?~

Also, i'm sorry for another poor written post ^^;;; I don't have much time to check my grammar at the moment... I probably made a lot of mistakes again.

Posted as Raka, will post as Yorick soon.

PinkSapphire, can you tell me if I got anything wrong about Fairy Tale, or any other canonical mess ups?

Also, I found out about the Raijuu when looking up different youkai and I would have shown much more interest in that than I ever did with the mermaid, which made me wonder why you picked mermaid as one of the playable species above others (like the Kraken).

Edit: I finally learned how to do the whole "link to the SU through the picture" thing.

I'm still sticking with "nekomusume/musuko". "Cat man" and "Cat woman" just don't sound right like they do for snowpeople. You might have copyright problems with "Catwoman", too.

I prefer them because they flow so well. It's not uncommon in Japanese to blend two words together if their similar, both professionally, and more commonly, for pun or convenience related reasons. Take Bakemonogatari for example. That title works better than, say, Bakemono Monogatari (methinks). I think it's the same case here, Nekotoko and Nekonna just blend so fantastically with each other; you just can't get that type of phonetic chemistry, otherwise.

After all, it's not like they are Cat Man and Cat Woman, they only turn into that when translated, but they're still independent words. They would be Nekotoko and Nekonna, not Cat Men and Cat Women. Really, the reason I picked it was strictly because of their Japanese names, and not what they come out to in English, since, for the most part, they would be referred to by the former, anyway.

Plus there's Mayuri from Steins;Gate, who does this with pretty much everyone, such as Okarin and, my favorite, Okaerin, which is an rather interesting mesh between Okarin, the a mesh of the main character's first and last names (Okabe + Rintarou = Okarin), and the word Okaeri, which means "Welcome Home!", effectively making the phrase "Welcome home, Okarin!" with half the trouble. *Sigh* If only that girl knew how smart she actually is.

I might add Kraken to the list later so everyone will be able to read their weaknesses and stuff. I didn't use Kraken for the RP this time because in the last version of Youkai Academy no one wanted to play as one ^^;

Your post is good c: keep it up~
I will add the new characters to the list today to keep the first page up-to-date.

Machomuu&TornZero- i'll wait with deciding untill I get more opinions c: … I kinda like both names~

My vote lies with Macho. I agree that Nekotoko/Nekonna sound the best, plus Yuki-onna are also used in the RP, though not by that name.

On a completely different note I think I found a decent picture for James.

"Yuki-onna" is the actual term used in Japanese mythology for the snow woman. "Nekomusume" is the term used for cat-people in Rosario + Vampire, which is what this is based on.

Just what we need: the megalomaniac of a main character to a sci-fi anime.

I merely stated that I think it sounds better, which is what I thought the whole discussion was about. I know that Nekomusume is the correct term for the youkai according to RosaVam, but so is Yuki-onna (the English equivalent doesn't count) and I don't see that term being used currently. In retrospect I suppose the inclusion of Yuki-onna in my original comment was a moot point. Lol, I wondered how long it would take someone to say something about the Lelouch pic, but it was that or a pic of Miharu Rokujou from Nabari no Ou. I chose this one because it didn't look as apathetic.
